#OpISIS: A Cyber attack against Twitter accounts related to ISIS


The Islamic State(ISIS) terrorist group is using social networking sites like Twitter to recruit people.  To bring an end to this, Anonymous hacktivists and their affiliates earlier this year launched an operation called "#OpISIS" against the ISIS.

The main motive of the operation is to take down all the websites and mainly Social Media accounts related to the ISIS.

The hacktivists have been on a search to identify Twitter accounts linked to ISIS. In March 2015, they reportedly tracked more than 25,000 Twitter accounts.  Most of the accounts have been reported and removed from Twitter. They also reportedly "destroyed" more than 100 websites.

Anonymous hackers now leaked more than 4000 email addresses, IP addresses and logs which is said to be taken from online communities supporting ISIS. Few links to the dumps have been shared in the Hackers Leaks website.

Some of the Email addresses listed in the dump ends with "*.gov" extension.
